Cataract surgery is a safe and effective means of treating the symptoms cataracts, such as glare and blurriness. It is, however, generally accepted that patients will still need to rely on glasses after standard cataract surgery. Now, there is the Alcon trifocal IOL (intraocular lens) called the AcrySof IQ PanOptix lens that is significantly reducing surgery patients’ dependence on glasses.
